The New World of Sauna

»Die neue Welt der Sauna«

From 6th of Dezember 2011 to 20th of January 2012 the gallery kunsthaus-erfurt.de (Germany) was exhibiting my first sauna show. On four floors different public saunas from Helsinki and Tampere and public sauna culture in general were presented to the German audience. The opening was very crowded and the event was well received. But no exhibition about Finish sauna culture without an authentic sauna experience! On the rooftop of the gallery I was putting my tent sauna during the vernissage to a real test. Everybody was invited to get naked and discuss differences between German and Finish sauna culture at about 90 degrees celsius... open end.

Mikko Fritze, head of Goethe Institut Finland, adressed the guests live via skype from arlansauna.net Sauna Arla in Helsinki during the opening ceremony. See below...

 

 

 

The gallery published a catalog for the exhibition »Die neue Welt der Sauna« (The New World of Sauna). The book is unfortunately sold out.
